Pie Baking Tips For Easy Pies!

If you love baking homemade pies from scratch and have the time to do so,then go for it, but don’t feel guilty if you can’t.There are many ways to get that homemade taste without as much work. For example, say your family loves homemade pumpkin pie but every year you notice that they only eat the filling and leave most of the crust. Then, this year, don’t put your pumpkin pie filling in a crust. Just pour it into a well greased baking dish or pan to bake. This will save you time and calories.

If your family loves homemade apple piebut you don’t have time to make a pie crust then make anapple crispinstead.

For homemade cinnamon rolls:Use frozen dough — most people can’t tell the difference. I’ve told this story before but it is a perfect example of what I mean. My grandmother-in-law made the best “homemade” noodles that everyone fought over and raved about at every family get-together. No one made noodles like grandma’s. One day I decided to ask grandma what her secret was and she took me to her freezer and laughingly, pulled out a bag of frozen egg noodles. Everyone assumed that she had made them from scratch.

Make your life easy and take shortcuts when you can.It is much less expensive to use convenience foods sometimes than to go out to eat.

Here are some more homemade pie baking tips for experienced bakers and beginning bakers:

  • For something different, try serving your apple pie with butter pecan ice creaminstead of the usual vanilla and/or top it with a little caramel ice cream topping.
  • Replace 1/4 of the white sugar in your apple pie recipe with brown sugarand/or replace your regular spices with pumpkin pie spice *(recipe below).
  • You can give canned apple pie filling more of a homemade flavorby adding apple pie or pumpkin pie spice* to it.
  • Lime juice works much better than lemon juiceto prevent fruits like apples from turning brown.
  • When making fruit pies,microwave the filling for 5-7 minutes before pouring it into the crust. This prevents the crust from becoming overly brown before the filling is completely cooked. In the case of an apple pie, you won’t have to worry about partially cooked apples.
  • When making pumpkin pie:Before you pour in the filling, bake the crust for 2-3 minutes just until it starts puffing a little on the bottom. Watch it carefully because it only takes a minute and you don’t want to totally cook it. This really helps prevent those sometimes very soggy pie crusts.
  • If you like cheese with your apple pie,mix 1 cup of grated cheddar cheese into your pie crust and then layer the apple filling with another cup of grated cheese.
  • If your homemade pies are too runny,add 1 Tbsp. of tapioca to your filling.
  • When making pecan pie,melt the butter in a saucepan until it turns golden brown. Watch it so it doesn’t burn. This adds the most wonderful caramel like flavor to your pie. For my favorite pecan pie recipe, check out the one involume 1 of our Dining On A DimeCookbook. I received this recipe many years ago from my sister-in-law Mary and have yet to taste one that comes close to it for flavor.
  • When making a graham cracker crust,add a little cinnamon to the mix.
  • When you need to make a graham cracker crust,crush enough crumbs to fill a large container or coffee can. The next time you make a graham cracker crust, you can just scoop out the amount you need.

This easy graham cracker crust recipe makes a sweet and buttery graham cracker pie crust perfect for homemade no-bake cheesecake, no bake pies and other tasty desserts!

Ingredients

Units

1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients.
  2. Press into a pie pan.

Use a spring form pan if you have one to make it easier. If you don’t have one, a 9-inch pie pan will work well, too.

Notes

Other options:

  • You can use chocolate wafer cookies in place of the graham crackers or save cookie crumbs in a container in the freezer to use for this too.
  • I also like to crush many graham crackers at once and store them in an air-tight container. Then all I need to do when I want a crust is to measure out what I need.
  • You can use a little cinnamon in the crust too or use cinnamon graham crackers (cutting back on some of the sugar).

The Best Homemade Apple Pie Recipe

This homemade apple pie recipe has been in our family for 75 yearsor more and still takes the #1 spot at any meal when served. It is our family’s favorite of these easy pie recipes and we make it for Thanksgiving, Christmas and all of our biggest family gatherings!

My mom bakes unbelievably good pies.Even her crust is delicious and this is her apple pie recipe. I have made it for years and now Tawra makes it, too. I used to tease my daughter about her cooking at times, but she has certainly learned how to make a mean apple pie with this easy apple pie recipe!

Here are a couple of apple pie tips before you start:

  • No pie recipe is set in stone.You can make some modifications to the ingredients in this apple pie recipe to adjust to your tastes. For example, you might add more or less cinnamon or you might use all white sugar or less sugar. For your first try,though,I suggest that youmake this apple pie recipe exactly as it is written and then adjust to your tastes the next time you make one. When people adjust things before making the apple pie recipe the way it is, I often hear, “My pie didn’t turn out well but I made it just like you said. I only changed this and this and this…” and by the time she has finished explaining, I discover that she has only used one of the original ingredients from my recipe. : )
  • What kind of apples do I use?Some people are dogmatic about what kind of apples they use and will only use baking apples for pies. I’m not so fussy and I use whatever apples are on sale or that I happen to have on hand. I personally don’t like the super tart taste from baking apples and I always needed to add more sugar when I used them. It also seems to take longer to bake using baking apples. My favorite thing to do with this homemade apple pie recipe is to use a couple of different kinds of apples. Don’t have a heart attack but, yes, I have used Delicious apples before.
  • One of the best things I have discoveredafter years of baking pies is to cook my fruit pie filling in the microwave for 2-3 minutes and then pour it into the crust. Two of my pet peeves about pies are soggy crusts and partially cooked apples in a pie. If you don’t partially cook the pie filling ahead of time, the crust willsometimes start turning too brown before the apples are done cooking. Pre-cooking the pie filling prevents overbrowning the crust.
  • Here is another post that can help you with your pie baking,along with a recipe for a delicious homemade pie crust:Homemade Pie Crust

Here is my best apple pie recipe and as a bonus, you’ll also find a recipe for an easy French apple pie topping.You use the French apple pie when you have only 1 crust for the bottom and need something to top it with. It is a cross between a pie and apple crisp.

How to make homemade apple pie filling

My mom makes the best apple pie.We have always loved it. I was talking to her and asked her how she makes it taste so good. She said “I used canned apples.” HA! All this time we thought it was some great secret and it was just canned apples!

If you are like me and have fresh apples piling up everywhere,here is a recipe I love that tastes amazing and freezes really well. I keep bags of it in the freezer to pop into a pie crust when I need it. Make this now and have it ready for those more hectic days during the holidays when you need a quick dessert or apple pie.

Part of the reason canned apples sometimes taste betteris because the apples are fully cooked and nice and tender so make sure your apples are well cooked.

This apple pie filling recipe can be slow cooked in a crockpot on low until apples are tender or cooked as the recipe says in a Dutch oven.

Easy No Bake Millionaire Pie Recipe

  • Yield: 1 Millionaire Pie

Ingredients

Units

Pie:

1 cup coconut flakes (sweetened)
1 (15 oz.) can crushed pineapple or fruit co*cktail, well drained
1 cup maraschino cherries, drained & chopped
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk (Make sure it’s NOT evaporated milk.)
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 Tbsp. maraschino cherry juice
1 1/2 cups whipped topping (Cool Whip)
1 graham cracker crust or regular pie crust

Garnish

1/2 cup whipped topping (Cool Whip**)
2 Tbsp maraschino cherries, chopped (optional)
1/4 cup pecans or walnuts (optional)

Instructions

  1. Combine the coconut, pineapple, cherries, nuts, sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice and cherry juice.
  2. Mix well.
  3. Fold in the whipped topping.
  4. Place in the pie crust.
  5. Garnish the top of the millionaire pie with garnish ingredients as desired. Makes one pie.

Notes

Here are a couple of tips for making this easy pie recipe:

  • Make sure you use actual Cool Whip and not just whipped cream. The pie won’t set up as well with whipped cream.
  • Be sure to use the lemon juice. It’s what sets the pie and there really isn’t any other substitute for it.
  • If you don’t like coconut, you can use marshmallows.
  • You don’t have to garnish the top with extra whipped cream, cherries and nuts but it does make a pretty presentation.
  • This recipe literally takes 5 minutes to make if you are using a pre-made pie crust. If you make your own graham cracker crust, you need to add about 5 more minutes.

  8. Top with the rest of the whipped topping.
  9. Chill at least 1 hour or overnight.
  10. If desired, top with toasted coconut.

Notes

*This would be so good with a chocolate pie crust, especially if you use chocolate shavings in place of the coconut to garnish.
